The size of the world in E.D: Horizons is actually astronomical and that vastness of space is what makes this game great but at the same time is its disadvantage. It’s incredible to travel around this massive unexplored unknown but at the same time once you have gotten a good grasp of the controls, have all the ships you need and attained a rank where money and reputation are easy to acquire the desire to go out into the unknown is very little as there is not that much to actually do there now. It is true that Horizons gives us the new option of being able to leave your ship and explore the planet surface in your SRV (Surface Recon Vehicle). Which will add more hours to your experience as can mine or explore but even if your find settlements or outposts you are still restricted to your SRV and in the end the things you can do on a planet is quite limited. It would be great to be able to get out and explore a bit or even build your own outpost on a planet.

One of the biggest games ever released, but not the most fun. Elite Dangerous may be too slow and even tedious for some players, but if you are into it's sci-fi simulation, this game is a blast.

All in all this season of Horizons is shaping up to be incredibly exciting. With the Engineers update well under way it is only a matter of time before we get ship-launched fighters, commander customization, and multicrew ships. With Elite: Dangerous Horizons, Frontier is doing everything right, and little wrong. More variety in ships, added customization, tweaked missions, planetary landings, you name it ... Elite has grown, and in all the right ways.
